Is this the swamp's the "last hurrah?"

For as wet as the swamp is,

It's hard to believe the dry season could start any day ...

As the swamp cycle turns

Meteorologic dry season that is.

Thee animated map above depicts the annual water cycle of the swamp: blue coding showing the presence of water and tan coding depicting areas going dry. Sloughs, strands and marshes hold on to water the longest, and pinelands the shortest. Hammocks scattered throughout the swamp tend to stay dry year round.
